A Kachin female journalist accompanied by other three member of the Associated Press (AP) team won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in public service for her reporting.
She and three members of the Associated Press (AP) team worked for an investigation of severe labour abuses in the Southeast Asian fishing industry that tied to the supply of seafood to American supermarkets and restaurants, reporting that freed 2,000 slaves, brought perpetrators to justice and inspired reforms.
Esther Htusan, 29, is the first ever woman journalist in Myanmar to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize.
